What can I do in Bàscara and its holiday cottages?

A town with a lot of history. This is Bàscara, a municipality in the Alt Empordà, nestled right on the border with the Baix Empordà, which includes the towns of Calabuig, les Roques and Orriols. An ideal town for lovers of cultural tourism and nature that also has one of the most popular living nativity scenes in the province of Girona.

The history of Bàscara and its surroundings

At least since the beginning of the 9th century, the town of Bàscara was the possession of the bishops of Girona. The first document in which it is mentioned is from the year 817, following a trial in which the boundaries of the Baschara villa were set. Its situation as a fortified town on the main road from Girona to France accentuated its strategic importance. In fact, in 1675, Bàscara was taken by the French, who established a base camp there for the siege of Girona. During the sieges of 1808 and 1809, French troops reoccupied the town until, at the end of the war, General Suchet blew up the fortifications.

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Bàscara

Visit the historic site of the town

Bàscara, as we have explained, still preserves a walled part and an important old town. So, if you're staying in a holiday cottages in Bàscara, you can't miss the historic site of the town, with the walls and the remains of the episcopal castle or the church of Sant Iscle, declared Cultural Assets of National Interest. Another must-see are the remains of the priory of Sant Nicolau de Calabuig and the church of Sant Feliu de Calabuig. Without forgetting the castle-palace of Orriols, a building from the 16th-17th centuries with a Renaissance facade that is worth seeing.

Walk around Bàscara

If you like hiking and are lovers of active tourism, you're in luck. You can go on excursions in the vicinity of the Fluvià river and discover the natural springs and caves in the area. In addition, one of the two sections of the Way of St. James on its way through Catalonia, passes through Bàscara. The route has two variants that converge in Medinyà: you can go through Orriols, Viladasens and Cervià de Ter or through Vilademuls and Terradelles. Both options allow you to get to know small agricultural and livestock villages.

JudithHostal Vilafreser - With friends

A very relaxed weekend with friends

The house is very comfortable and we really liked it. We were 10 friends with two small children and we were able to enjoy the garden and the pool all day. As a suggestion, I would put something for mosquitos and flies on the windows and especially the dining room window as there were a lot of bugs and a very cute little bird that kept sneaking into the house.

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much, Judith, for your opinion and rating. We are glad to hear that you found comfort in the house and that you enjoyed your stay. We take note of your suggestions to evaluate them. Thanks for the visit.

JordiCan Vicens - With friends

Great stay in Can Vicens. Relaxation in the middle of nature and great living on the porch.

A group of 15 people (9 adults and 6 children) stayed for 3 nights (17/05/2024 - 20/05/2024) in Can Vicens. The stay was great, relaxing and great to enjoy the different areas of the house, both inside and outside. The rooms are very good, with a private toilet for almost each of them. Great rest in good beds and very quiet and peaceful when sleeping. And during the day, making the most of the large porch located outside and also of the tables around the porch itself and the pool (the porch has everything you need: barbecue, fridge, dishwasher, plates and cutlery, toilet, etc.). It really is a great space. We also enjoyed the swimming pool during the many times that the sun was out, as well as the football field to play some games. Overall, the house is a 10! Xavi's attention has also been very good, leaving us independence at all times during our stay in the house.
